ďMary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.Ē The Bible does not tell anything about Maryís thoughts. Once I tried to enter into Maryís life on Christmas morning and think what kind of thoughts and feelings she had.

Here he is. My son. Godís son Ė said the angel.

It was an ordinary day months ago. I was working at home and suddenly the room was filled with light. It was glaring. I cannot ever forget the words I heard: Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.

I could not understand, what that greeting was all about. You are going to have a baby, said the angel. You are going to be the mother of Godís Child. It was so confusing and odd, but at the same time somehow clear. What else could I say what I said: I am the Lord's servant. May it be to me as you have said.

Here is the baby now. My son. Godís son.

Though I was worried about what Joseph would take it. But he told me, that an angel had visited him too. He assured that we are going to be a family. Joseph was going to be the father of our family in every case. God will take care of us.

But I must say that sometimes it has been hard to trust in God. For a while ago when we heard that we have to leave for Bethlehem. I knew child could be born any moment, especially when the way was long and hard. For many times I thought we are not going to make it. But God took care of us. He gave strength for the next day. One step at a time.

Here is the baby now. My son. Godís son.

I suppose we have to live a day at a time in future too. A moment a time. So many strange things have happened in a short time. As we finally got a place to stay over night and the baby was born, I was looking at the stars. And suddenly in the middle of them there was a much brighter star on the sky. And it did not take long when the whole sky was glowing mysterious light. Soon after that some shepherds came to us and they said that angels had told them: Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. The angel had advised them where they could find the baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.

Here is the baby now. My son. Godís son.

I cannot understand. Incomprehensible things are happening. Things nobody has ever seen or heard. Godís will comes true. In this childís life. In my life. It is amazing. And though Iím afraid whatís going to happen, it feels good and safe at the same time. God is with us.
